Starter motor weak. weak battery or engine is seized. take the spark plugs out and turn engine over with spanner on the bottom bolt on the pulley. if thats fine and move the engine freely then check the battery try a jump off a good battery. if not good and still will not start with the spark plugs back in then the starter motor is weak and needs changing. can do any of these in any order you like.

I have replaced solenoid and starter and still starter makes noise but doesent engage the flywheel why


Sometimes the starter has to be shimmed to engage the ring gear of the flywheel

Starter wont engage


either the starter is not kicking out its gear to meet the flywheel or the flywheel has missing teeth. either way the next step is to remove the starter so it can be tested outside of the vehicle and the flywheel can be looked at through the hole where the starter sat.

Starter turns but wont engage engine?


Sounds like the Bendix... You might ought to pull the starter and look at the teeth on both the bendix of the starter and the flywheel. If the teeth on both are in good shape...then its probably a weak starter not throwing the bendix out to turn the flywheel. But...if the teeth are **** up on the bendix...its cheaper tp replace it. Make sure Battery is in good condition as well. Both battery AND starter can be tested at your local AutoZone... Hope this helps...

Turn switch on and all the lights work but the starter wont engage


If the starter wont turn...Id check / replace starter solonoid.
If the starter turns but doesn't engage the flywheel...I'd check / replace the bendix.
If starter checks good and bendix is good...I'd look at the teeth on the flywheel.

Hope this helps...

Starter spins but wont engage, could it be a fuse


HUH??? The electrical circuit is working and you think there is a blown fuse?
NO! there is a MECHANICAL problem with your starter like a broken bendix or a chewed-up flywheel. You need to remove your starter motor and inspect the teeth on your flywheel. Look through the starter hole and turn the engine by hand so you can inspect the teeth all the way around. I usually mark the flywheel with a marking pen before I start turning it so I can tell when I have gone all the way around. If the teeth are all in decent condition, replace the starter. If you find any broken/damaged teeth, you need to pull your transmission and replace the flywheel. (AND probably replace the starter anyway.)

Starter turns and has a grinding noise but wont crank the engine


more then likely, its the gear on end of starter not meshing with flywheel. the teeth on the starter gear are softer then the flywheel teeth. to prevent ruining flywheel. remove starter and. check it out. have a very good day !!

I have a 63 C20 that the starter wont turn over the flywheel but its a good starter and the solenoid is new. The starter is meshing with the flywheel


If the gear is meshing ok with the flywheel it should start unless the one way clutch in the starter gear is bad.
